, the political power, i think as senator john mccain said, it is elections, elections, elections, that john boehner will see, as well, there is a need to pass immigration reform. we didn't get into the logistics of what the house strategy would be. >> ryan grim is the momentum building with cantor's flip-flop, does that create more momentum? >> sure, i mean, it certainly moves one end of the debate. republicans now more or less have to be for the dream act or they're considered not part of it, anywhere near the reasonable conversation, but you know, look, if they want to put the dream act up alone and push is forward i imagine that democrats would say okay, fine. we'll do the dream act if that is all we can get. but you know, republicans are fooling themselves if they think that the dream act is going to be enough to get comprehensive immigration reform. you know, democrats are going to want legalization for everybody who is here who has not committed a crime, et cetera, et cetera, in order to give the republicans what they want in the comprehensive bill. so just the dream act is not going

base is extreme and out of touch and is standing in the way of progress. senator john mccain saw it firsthand at a town hall yesterday. >> most of the people that come across the border are illiterate. they don't speak english and they're dependent class. >> they care for our babies. they're people who have been here illegally for 50 years. or 40 years. am i then telling them to be guest workers? >> why bring a 30 -- >> they're here. >> cut off their welfare and all of their stuff and they'll go backseat. >> illiterate. on welfare. so much for change. but there's no reasoning with them. >> you're a senator with the federal government and you're doing nothing about it. you said build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> that's not a fence. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid to say and it's too damn bad, is a gun. that's all that will stop'm. >> the only thing that stops them is a gun. even when republicans are trying to move forward, the base won't let them. how can the gop change when the loudest voices in the par

out to republicans. he called john mccain and lindsay graham and marco rubio. in a statement the white house said the president reiterated that he remained supportive of the effort underway in congress. as that phone call came in for one senator, so did something of a backlash for constituents. at two town hall meetings in arizona, john mccain had to defend his position on immigration and it got heated. several voters called illegal immigrants criminals and asked why armed soldiers can't defend the entire border. >> cut off their welfare and all of their stuff and go back. >> majority of them are not -- >> you're a senator with the federal government and you're doing nothing about it. you said build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> it's a banana, we've put up a banana with all -- >> let me bring in "washington post" reporter felicia san dez and jackie, we knew this wasn't going to be easy. what do you think away from that town hall meeting? do you think the folks are representative of a bigger problem for some of these

. and the gop is losing latino support. john mccain got 31%. romney only got 27%. i suspect that rubio is not only being used for his talents. >> i think the republicans are trying to rebrand this. but let's look at rubio's numbers. rubio, among the latinos in florida, he overwhelmingly won the cuban vote. but he didn't win the rest of the latino vote. when you look at history where he actually looks at, he attacks, for example, private education. and i think, again, that's the only way you're going to win the latino vote is to start talking to them straight. >> is he a leading contender for 2016. and does this further embellish if he does well on tuesday night? >> again, they're reintroducing the brand. and he's the headliner for that. he can't backtrack like he did so quickly on immigration. >> so on climate change and a lot of things, he's all over the place. >> he basically has to identify the problem with the republican party. i also encourage him to start talking a little bit about he keeps saying he doesn't believe in govt entitlement programs. unfortunately, right now, the gove

senator, ted cruz. barely in office a month and listen to this exchange he had with john mccain. >> it is at a minimum relevant to know if that $200,000 that he deposited in his bank account came directly from saudi arabia, came directly from north korea. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country, and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> now, cruz went on to say, i don't have any evidence that moneys come from north korea but i mean this is a fellow member of the texas delegation. >> sure, and i met ted, and he's always been nice to me, but that was, quite frankly, shameful to suggest that somebody that was a decorated veteran in vietnam, who was wounded and hurt for his country was not loyal to his country i think really is quite harsh and had no place there. >> you know what, he's not running for senator congeniality and he doesn't much care. there was no predicate for suggesting that that money came from north korea or any other very horrible country, and as the former solicitor general of texas, he ought
